    Next year, I swear I’ll just take a vacation by myself.

    Not if Mom does it first.

    What parent doesn’t? Leave Calvin in some tall grass or forest and let him do it there. Let’s just hope they are not tempted to leave him stranded.

    Now, Dad, be fair. Calvin didn’t have to go when you were still in the restaurant. And let’s face it, when ya gotta go, ya gotta go!!

    I’ve been to Niagara Falls twice. It’s a really beautiful sight.

    My mom brought wide mouth bottles (with lids) for us little boys to use in these situations. I still bring an empty Honest Tea bottle on long car trips, and have used it while stuck in stand still traffic for hours. Online stores sell little plastic devices to let a woman do the same thing.

    The problem is that they just left a restaurant. Calvin had something like a hamburger, fries, and Coke. The Coke is now running through his kidneys. The solid food will come through a little later.

    I’m pretty sure my dad had the same thoughts, but he never let on.

    Another day, another gray hair each for Mom and Dad!Personally: I’m 55, never been in any kind of serious relationship, never learned to drive (hope never to! — too dangerous, too scary!), no car, no wife, no kids! But here in San Francisco, I wouldn’t really need a car anyway!Darn, I never get to have any of that (so-called) “fun”!(LOL!)

    pee jar, only way to go. Once I was stuck in a white out, cars jammed up for 4 hours. I had to get out and pee in the snow, in full sight of all ((no bushes) After that episode, the pee jar came with on trips

    Never been to a St. Patrick’s Day parade yet that didn’t have at least some people watering the alleys because the lines of the port-a-potties were too long……….

    We have a “familyism” pertaining to this..We were on a cross-country trip and had just gotten back on the interstate after lunch, when my then-4-year-old daughter said she needed the bathroom. After the “are you sure? we just had lunch” conversation, I resignedly got off at the next exit, pulling into a parking lot under the Golden Arches..She brightened up and said, “Happy meal?” “No, bathroom.” “French fries?” “No, bathroom.” “Ice cream?” “NO! Bathroom.”.She let out a long sigh and said, “Oh. So this is just a McPotty stop?”.It’s now been part of the family vernacular for 25 years.

    You know Dad, Mom is what, in her thirties now? Just wait ’till she gets to 50s, 60s, or 70s! Your three hour tour will take at least four hours…

    Calvin is literally a pisser.

    Can we get Bill Watterson to come out of retirement?!

    Calvin and Hobbes never gets old. Such a classic.

    And isn’t it funny how that works.
